Publisher Description

PERREAULT, ROBERT B. Franco-American Life and Culture in Manchester, New Hampshire: Vivre la difference. Charleston: The History Press, 2010. Pp 144. ISBN 978-1-59629-897-2. Franco-American Life and Culture in Manchester, New Hampshire by Robert B. Perreault is a history of the Queen City's Franco-American community from its settlement in the 1830s to the 2010 inauguration of the ACA (Association Canado-Americaine) / Lambert Franco-American Collection at Saint Anselm College's Geisel Library. The work is a compilation of Perreault's essays--some previously published and updated with author's notes and some new material--richly augmented by illustrations from the author's private collection of vintage photographs, reproductions of oil paintings, commercial art, and French-language newspapers. For North American teachers and students of French who may be unfamiliar with the linguistic and cultural heritage of New England's Franco-American communities, Perreault's history provides a reader-friendly, highly engaging portrait of a bilingual, bicultural community that straddles, much like the front cover's photograph of Notre Dame Bridge, gateway to the Franco West Side, two worlds.
